Class A oil is recommended for use in power transformers, especially those subject to cold start-up or that have forced oil cooling, including associated onload tap changers, all of which operate in ambient temperatures below -25°C.

“We look forward to meeting the industry at CWIEME to talk more about NYTRO® Polaris GXN and the other high-performance grades in our transformer oil portfolio, which is the largest in the world,” concludes Koen Kempeneer.
